Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
Intelligent Transport Systems are related with the development of modern technologies that enhance the safety, efficiency and comfort, increasing the functionality of cars and roads using modern information technologies. Current works involve several levels: in-vehicle applications, infrastructure and communication applications such as vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I). Road transport is the transport system with higher number of users. This topic deals with the main technologies applied in the so called Smart Vehicles, as well as the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
